This Mustang replacement pickup uses our proprietary angled pole piece design, providing the player with the largest coil possible and maximum amount of throaty tone. Although these pickups may appear tiny and totally harmless, the tone that flows from the diminutive bass that serves as their vessel will emerge fat, warm, and practically snarling. Think of all the best characteristics of a P-Bass, carry that image over to the Mustang, snicker in disbelief that such a bass could ever deliver a viable excuse for massive tone—turn the amp on, feel the power, and let your fingers rage with the guilt of not having faith in the NM4’s outrageously provocative punch. The NM4 will provide true-blood vintage tone that simulates all the best aspects of the standard P with an added dimension of darkened mids and an aggressive grind.
*Made for the Japanese reissue Mustang Bass with larger covers. If you have an original Mustang Bass, or newer with smaller covers, contact our shop to ensure you get the correct size.

History: The NM4 was created for the sole purpose of providing our customers with a replacement Mustang pickup. With Nordstrand's proprietary angled pole piece technology, these pickups provide everything you love about Mustangs with—if you can imagine it—additional output and stylistic umph. Given the size of these guys, you simply won’t believe that the tone they emit could stem from such a comparatively microscopic design.
